We enjoyed the gardens, the playgrounds and feeding the many happy ducks. It’s a great free way to spend grounding yourself or meditating against one of the beautiful old trees. Fun and grounding for the whole family!

The botanical gardens in Christchurch were nice to walk in, but at this time of year (april), they weren’t spectacular. Would like to see them a different time of year. The massive trees were pretty cool though.

You can get to the car park off Armagh St near the start of Park Tce and the end of Rolleston Avenue. You can drive through the park passed the tennis courts on the right and on to the car park on the left under the trees near the children's playground which is on the other side of the pedestrian bridge over the Avon River. It is quite a big car park and during the week it is usually easy to find a car park sometimes on a nice sunny weekend the carpark fills up. If there are festivals it becomes impossible to get a park.
